Samsung Introduces the DP700C6A-X01US ‘ArtPC’

Catchy name aside, the DP700C6A-X01US is distinguished from a lot of its competitors because it’s cylindrical. Jon Phillips, PC World:

It would be easy to call the ArtPC Pulse a rip-off of Apple’s Mac Pro, but that position just ignores another competitor in the “let’s make a computer shaped like a cylinder!” race. The HP Pavilion Wave is currently for sale in HP’s online store, and, frankly, it looks way more sophisticated that Samsung’s bid for exactly the same market.

Go ahead: click on that link and tell me that the Samsung DP700C6A-X01US looks more like HP’s extruded Reuleaux triangle than it does a Mac Pro. I dare you.

On the plus side, perhaps the introduction of the DP700C6A-X01US will remind Apple that they do still sell the Mac Pro, and maybe it might be a good idea to, you know, update it.
